Edinburgh's Disgrace at Beltane

If you come to Beltane for the first time, and you're up the hill early enough, get a spot in front of the National Mounment (or Edinburgh's Disgrace.) We didn't know this and so when the action started, we had to push our way through to get a bit of a view of the fire rituals. We didn't get terribly close so this is one of those put your camera in the air and hope for the best photos.

Always sucks to be far away from the action. Happens all too often to me. How long have these Beltane festivals been going on in Edinburgh?

You may have already explained this earlier- but why is it called Edinburgh's disgrace?

(Sorry, I just had to think of Franz Ferdinand with this scottish picture and all the fire... =)
